The story of the man who invented the iconic Borsalino hat

While most people recognize the iconic Borsalino hat, they know little of its history and even less of the man who created an empire around his hat making. Born in 1834 to a humble family in the province of the north Italian city of Alessandria, Giuseppe Borsalino escaped a life of poverty by learning the craft of a hatter from a local artisan. Ambitious and curious, he redefined hat-making and opened a business based on workers’ rights. This documented historical novel is an engaging journey that follows the illustrious and illuminating life of a man who followed his dream with tenacity and passion.
